Day 826: Lei Light Eon by Iglooghost

Compared to Neo Wax Bloom this is way, WAY less energetic and hectic. It seems to be focused on creating soundscapes and atmospheres instead of herky-jerky bangers like that album, but there's often still too much going on for this to qualify as "ambient". I dunno, I'm not crazy for this one after two listens.

Best Track: Light Gutter

Day 827: Chemtrails Over The Country Club by Lana Del Rey

I remember right before she announced the title of this album, she had that whole controversy where everyone ended up accusing her of being a cop-dating racist and I had a good laugh. Then she announced this album title and I had an even bigger laugh.

Sadly, this album isn't good for a laugh. It's... pretty mediocre. Just average soft rock and ballads for the entire 45 minutes. Nothing sticks out good or bad, this is just middling. Good production at the very least, but I fail to see how anyone could be amazed by this stuff. I say good for the LGBTQIA+ community (or really, just the gay men) that they mostly ditched her for Charli XCX as their cis het woman icon.

Best Track: I hate school

Day 828: Zapper by NANORAY

Yay, something I actually like to come out of this year, this reminds me a lot of Machine Girl's earlier releases, except honestly I think this has a bit more kick and style (and weeb) to it. I need to get back to work, and also find more shit to listen to.

I think I'm heavily biased at the moment towards

A. Shit that makes me wanna go to the club (because I can't, even though most things I listen to that sound like club music are actually nothing like most of the clubs I go/went to)
B. Shit that makes me think of sex (this does not I promise you)

Best Track: Salmon Cannon

Day 829: In Ferneaux by Blanck Mass

Phase I was really good. Phase II lost me. This guy should stick to making songs under 10 minutes with actual titles.

Also, is Fuck Buttons good as dead? Is this guy just gonna keep trucking on solo while Andrew Hung scores for Jim Hosking or whatever? I'm okay with that I just wanna know.

Best Track: Phase I

Day 830: Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine by Brockhampton

Apparently nowadays all the kids on TikTok are saying shit "omg my Brockhampton phase ewwwww" and you know what? Fuck them. To this day, I still think Saturation II/III absolutely slap and are loaded to the brim with bangers, capture many different moods quite perfectly and most of all gave us some of the most enjoyable cuts to shout along to with your friends. Does that make me super white? Maybe (although most of the fans of this band that I've ended up meeting have been POC women) but I don't care.

However, I will say that since 2017 when these guys were the hot new thing (god, I can't believe it's been nearly 4 years since the summer of these guys and Flower Boy, take me back indeed) pretty much everything they've dropped has been garbage. There's been good cuts here and there but none of their album projects really stuck with me (iridescence actually got WORSE upon further listens) and I was wondering if they were running out of steam, or if the expulsion of Ameer Vann did something to throw the group chemistry out of whack, even though he wasn't that interesting of a rapper.

Anyways, this album is surprisingly good! I think waiting two years to drop it did them well, as it is a bit front-loaded but in general is surprisingly consistent, with only two or three songs really doing nothing for me or worse (typically when they lean more into that "boy band" sound they're trying to ditch) and some of the best cuts rival the best shit they did at their peak. I'm not amazed by this album, but I was expecting it to be a lot worse than it is. Also, having features permeate throughout for the first time ever was a VERY smart move. The features often dominate over the actual group members (wassup Danny Brown) but in reality, who cares if it makes for better music? And even when the track isn't good, sometimes the features give it a bit more value (I'm not a fan of I'll Take You On but Charlie Wilson definitely adds some much needed flair to it).

Okay, I really need to get to finishing this assignment due tonight.

Best Track: Buzzcut or The Light

Day 831: Promises by Floating Points, Pharoah Sanders & London Symphony Orchestra

Yeah it's pretty and I enjoyed it throughout but I guess I'm just not smart enough to see why this is flooring everyone. I also definitely enjoyed it way more during the first half.

Okay back to work.

Best Track: This is just one long piece really, even if it's frontloaded

Day 832: CLAMOR by Maria Arnal i Marcel Bagés

Finally something on the charts I really like! I usually find a language barrier hard to get past but I don't care if these lyrics translate to absolute garbage, everything from production to melody to how the album is structured is just perfect and leaves you wanting more. I want more.

Best Track: Tras de ti

Day 833: Never The Right Time by Andy Stott

I like the fully ambient tracks best here, and that includes the interlude. I like this quite a bit as a whole regardless, although some parts get a bit boring the whole space of the thing is hitting me well right now. FIND ME A JOB.

Day 834: Harlecore by Danny L Harle

I saw this had a high number of ratings and I was thinking to myself "hmmm.... where have I heard of this guy before?" Halfway through the album, I remembered that this guy was tied to [adult swim] somehow. Then right around when I finished my first listen, I remembered that this guy's was used on the Nazi show they had for 6 weeks! I'm not gonna bother googling to figure out if this guy has any weird political affiliations, I've already listened to this whole thing.

And my opinion? God, that was ANNOYING. A few tracks were bouncy fun that made me think of club nights, but the majority of it just agitated me to no end. I don't doubt that this guy could definitely make some bangers, but the whole aesthetic of this album reminds me of hyperpop, and I dislike the vast majority of hyperpop. I tried to give this and started skipping whenever a track was getting on my nerves, and that was more than half the songs. Ugh.

So close to graduation. So far from getting a job. So scared of the future.

Best Track: For So Long
